Elisabeth Hasselbeck Slams Rosie O’Donnell Amidst Reports of Her Return to “The View”

She has a nice, cushy job over at “Fox and Friends” these days, but Elisabeth Hasselbeck still has some unresolved bitterness against her former “The View” co-host Rosie O’Donnell.

The beautiful conservative television personality called in to her morning show today (July 9) from vacation to voice her disappointment in Rosie’s return to the ABC program.

Elisabeth declared, “Here in comes to The View the very woman who’s spit in the face of our military, spit in the face of her own network, and, really spit in the face of a person who stood by her and had civilized debates for the time that she was there – coming back with a bunch of control, ready to regain The View with a seat at that table.”

“Go back to the reunion show for Barbara, how odd is this? When you have a woman who again insinuated that our own troops are terrorists in Iraq at the time, [who] left the show…while still at the end of her contract – to have such ease the day of Barbara’s goodbye show was shocking to me. She walked around with a lot of control and then when I had the chance to talk to her, Rosie herself, told me, on-set while we were mic-ed up, that she produced the reunion show to have everybody together and that it was her idea. Now, do you think the woman who left the way that she did would be producing Barbara’s goodbye show? Here’s the shocker, it was actually her ‘Hello Show.’”

Furthermore, Hasselbeck speculated, there’s going to be trouble between O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg. “Anybody who’s going to be in that seat, if indeed it’s all going to play out as I think it will or already has, will have to be approved by Rosie. Let’s not forget Whoopi Goldberg is sitting there and Whoopi is not going to let anyone control her…She has actually more trophy…than Rosie – she’s the leader on that show. I’m going to be very interested to see how that goes.”
